Almost one year since the “DH in the Time of Virus” Twitter conference, which took DH Twitter by storm right at the beginning of the pandemic and was voted 1st Runner Up in the “Best DH Response to COVID-19” at the DH Awards, the Digital Curation Unit – IMSI, ATHENA R.C. is organizing a follow-up event, this time a digital workshop in which we aim to reunite the Twitter Conference participants alongside further DH researchers.
We are pleased to introduce Susan Hazan as the new Chair of the Europeana Network Association! In her first post in the role, she shares her thoughts on working boundaries and how we can all make efforts to set them.
As part of Europeana’s Europe at Work season, the Hunt Museum, Limerick, Ireland, and partners have been exploring the role of the Shannon Hydro-Electric Scheme. The team involved in engaging audiences onsite and online during COVID-19 discuss their approach and the importance of sharing stories of Europe’s industrial heritage.
With public events in 2020 largely cancelled, public engagement events have been difficult. We speak with partners in Ireland who have been working on projects collecting stories from the public during the pandemic.
